Roger Williams, Member of Parliament for Brecon & Radnorshire, has welcomed news that Crickhowell Post Office is being upgraded to a new main style branch, meaning a full refurbishment and longer opening hours.
This upgrade is part of a three-year investment and support programme, the largest in the history of the Post Office, creating a more modern and convenient experience for customers using their local Post Office.
In Crickhowell, this will mean a newly refurbished branch with a modern open plan environment, longer opening hours, and selected Post Office services being available at the retail counter during shop opening hours, including on Sunday.
Roger said “the Post Office plays an important role in rural areas like ours and provides much needed services to many of our local communities. Despite their importance, rural branches have often been neglected, so I am glad to hear that the Post Office have chosen to upgrade the Crickhowell branch to ensure that it provides a modern and convenient experience which fits with people’s daily lives.”
The new style branch will be open on Monday 11 August.
